A martial art and a self-defense program, Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) is a combat system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. Brought to Brazil as an adaptation of Judo, BJJ came into its own art form through hundreds of thousands of hours of practice and experimentation to turn it into one of the best methods of self-defense for 1 on 1 combat ever created. It is like a chess game with your body.
We have instructors and classes that will suit your jiu-jitsu needs, whatever they are. Our emphasis, however, is on proper technique. Whether you want to develop your BJJ game for self defense or to fight, we believe that absolute precision in your technique is essential for its execution. Although our school has been incredibly successful at regional grappling and sport jiu-jitsu tournaments, our focus is on jiu-jitsu for self-defense and MMA. We attribute this to the quality of our instructors and the value of putting proper technique above all else.
Our classes typically consist of warm-ups, learning new techniques, drilling existing technique, and then live sparring. We offer both gi (uniform) as well as no-gi classes.
